High Quality Mats

Does anyone here know of a vendor selling really good rubber mats, that
custom fit an 85 300TD? My wife purchased a set of Cannon mats many years ago that are still in good shape. Online I find out that Cannon
mats are UK items, and that there are no model specific large mats
for the cargo area. The 300TD custom fit mats seem to start at 1987.
What if any mat are folks using in the cargo area of your TD?

I just use a shipping blanket, but it would be cool to have a cargo area tray/mat. I had one in the trunk of my Acura that had a 4" wall so it was perfect for use with snowy ski boots etc.

This link has rubber mat material in 48" widths and sold by the foot. This might work well:

Coco Mats are good. Not sure if Weathertech.com still has W123 mats or not.

I'm really happy with the weathertech mats I have in my truck. According to their website, they do carry a set of mats for your car.

They don't have a cargo area mat though.

I wonder if the dimensions are close to any particular SUV? Might have to trim a little but it ought to be doable.

Mats

Thanks for the suggestions. I really wanted tan weathertech mats. They
look as good as Cannon. However they don't have a cargo area mat. It looks like they do when you enter the car info, but it then states for 87
instead of 85. Perhaps one of the members here has taken a shot at adapting another model's cargo mat. Sure I'd like a custom fit, but "almost" custom is ok. The only thing is the "ridges" on the mats are to trap and hold liquids, so you can't reall trim very far into that "grid". Sure
wish I could see them before purchase. The stores around here only have
big-chain store junk.
